Beautiful resort, very clean, lots of sunbeds at the pool and beach, friendly staff, we chose not to tip until the day we left and the service was brilliant, food was good in the buffet restaurant, we didn't use the a la carte more than once as the buffet was more varied, beach bbq was nice too, only down side...

I really enjoyed by stay at the Iberostar, food was good, great service overall was a lovely place to stay, no complaints. I had never been to Cuba this was my first time. I plan to go back and I will stay at the same place. Beach was close, clean and lots of fun.

This was my first trip to Cuba we choose the hotel as at time of booking February 2014 it was number 1 . By the time we arrived it had dropped to number 2. In terms of the actual hotel it was nice not the best Iberostar I have stayed in and I have stayed in a few. The most... More

A very welcoming Reception was the start of 4 wonderful days here. Upgraded to Junior Suite as we had also stayed at Iberostar in Trinidad that week (also excellent!) so free champagne and 'romantic' meal but more importantly sea view. Meals good for amount of catering they have to do but not fine dining. Lovely few days in superb surroundings... More

We (my wife and I) spent a week at this resort 30Aug-06Sep2014. This was our second trip to Iberostar Varadero. We were there last year for 1 week around the same time. We have been going to Cuba since 2004 and were always impressed by the wonderful people, beaches and great entertainment. However, we were never impressed with the food... More

This is by far the best Varadero has to offer if not even in all of Cuba! From the moment you walk in you are greeted professionally and the front desk staff take it from there! The rooms are spacious and cleaned meticulously on a daily basis. The grounds are kept perfectly and the entertainment staff go above and beyond... More

A great hotel to arrive at after a few days in the busy City of Havannah....an ideal place to rest and relax. The staff were fantastic and very attentive - nothing too much trouble. Room service was part of the all inclusive package and the quality was great. The Japanese restaurant is a must...a real theatrical experience! Sun beds were... More

We had spent time in Havana, then travelled around Cuba for a few days and to finish our trip we wanted to relax on a beach for the last week. We arrived here and it was beautiful. The beach is lovely and we always managed to get a sun lounger on the beach. The pools are lovely but we preferred... More

We spent seven days at Iberostar Varadero in early June 2014 (sorry fro the late review). A month later, we went to Mexico (Mayan Riviera), another five star resort, and while we had a great time on both vacations, I must say that Iberostar Varadero is pure class. Everything was simply perfect. This is not one of the flashy hotels... More
